life is strange
there are currently almost eight billion people on Earth,
and no one knows how we got here
or what to do about it now
in the twenty-first century
of the gregorian calendar's
certainly, life has always wondered
and looked towards philosophers, poets, painters, dancers, and music-makers
to provide answers to humanity's greatest questions, like:
"why isn't the wifi working?" or
"do you think I can fit my whole foot in my mouth?"
yet it feels like we keep getting further from signal
or able to actually taste our ankles...
so we laugh
and relax into time well utilized
with tools for reaching towards self and back out again
as energy only changes form, never dies entirely, just becomes something else
like every sound we make causes ripples in the space around us
and eventually returns a new experience
beyond words which aim to quantify
the limitless interconnectedness of all things
while music is that unspeakable vibration just vibrating
in our brains developing new pathways to understand information
and filter experience into perception past the surface of our
emotions, thoughts, ideas, or ability to understand completely
because very tiny creatures in the cosmic scale we are
ants and molecules and subatomic lovers amidst the great waves of order
and chaos and
we are supermassive stars ready to burst and become new life on earth again affecting everything around us with every passing moment; we are important.
not because someone says we are or because we measure up to society's terms of success, but because we are weaving meaning for ourselves
as every movement is already magical music,
so we laugh
because handpan building is a search for balance,
the beauty of living can be found in the unspeakable nuance of all things,
and there is joy in sharing music with others.
Videos of instruments for immediate sale
